busy week

Friends and Family, 

 This week has been pretty good.   We have a Baptism coming up this weekend,  her name is Misty she has been being taught for about a month now and she loves Jesus!  She is great.  We are also working with her daughter, but she does not have a baptism date yet.   She is 14 and her name is Dechantene. We  have been teaching another investigater named Jammine and she  also has a baptsim date for Dec. 23rd!  We are keeping busy and it is great.  

 This last week we got to help out with the tree lot again and after we helped out they let us pick our own tree! :) its almost 8 feet tall in our lil 1 bedroom apt! but it looks great! :) i don't have my camera so I will send pics next week!  We get to go to the temple on Wednesday and I am always excited for that!  Its always so fun to be able to go there and feel  peace! 

 We had a conference call a couple nights ago about Mary the mother of Jesus and man was it good! i wish yall could just call in and listen! Sounds like yall had fun this weekend! We have our ward Chrsitmas party this Saturday.   They are doing it in the morning as well so it will be different. Man i just feel like i never have enough time to write everything!

 I hope yall have a great week! i love yall so much!
Elder Anderson!

Turkey bowl winners. Nov 26, 2012

Family and friends, I hope y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It's a little different down here in the south for Thanksgiving but still the same meaning! Just a lot more corn bread! But hey I'm not complaining about that! We had Thanksgiving at our bishop's house and also the Melby's, a member in our ward. They are both very great cooks! The food was great!  We got to play in the turkey bowl again this year. I'm proud to say I'm 2 and 0 on my mission. I had the winning interception in the championship game! I should have been a receiver in high school. haha I had 7 touch downs! I had lots of fun but was very sore the next couple days, but it was well worth it! My new companion is Elder Tuailemafu -Mauigoa (Tawaee lema foa maui goa) haha took a while to get it down! He is a great missionary and we are excited to work together to find, teach, and baptize. I'm still the district leader for our district of 10 missionaries. We are having a Christmas luncheon at the mission home this Wednesday. Sister Holzapfel is so nice and good to us! That's a lot of cooking! But it should be great! We found some new investigators. One family is from Ghana and said we could come back Wednesday along with a man that just moved here for schooling. So we will see and update y'all next week on how it goes! Crazy to hear all the people getting home off their missions! Well better send this so I can send pictures! We bought a Christmas tree today!
I love y'all.
